Trapped In Static
Products used: Clayton custom picks
We started using the Steve Clayton acetal custom guitar picks as a way to promote the band. Once we ordered the first ones, I decided to try them out and since then I have been using them in performing as well. I have used tons of different picks in the past but the feel on these ones is perfect. Fans also love the idea since its something small and yet includes all the info you need, band’s website, logo and twitter 😉 – smart way to expand our fanbase, they go away fast. The picks and the print is pretty durable and many fans and friends have also used it as a jewelry (necklace and bracelet) – cant ask more then that! Thank you Steve Clayton!
Trapped In Static (TIS) is an alternative rock/indie band based in New York City formed by singer/musician Athan Hilaki (previously with GAD.) and drummer David Torres in September 2011. With Athan’s vocals, often characterized as a mix of Chris Cornell, Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder and Scott Stapp, David’s heavy but always funky drum rhythms, they create their own sound with influences from Nirvana and U2 to Coldplay and Kings Of Leon, something that always leaves the unknown crowd asking… “How come we’ve never heard of you guys before?”
Trapped In Static has performed live in some of New York City’s hottest concert venues such as Gramercy Theater, The Bitter End, Sullivan Hall, Knitting Factory, Pianos, Bowery Electric, Delancey and Arlene’s Grocery as well as the cable TV show “Minding Your Business” (2012) and “Niteclub Ratings” (2013). TIS has also appeared live on, Ellas TV, WVIP FM, Nexus Productions Radio, and Hellas FM radio. In December 2011 TIS. finished 5th in the competition “Hometown Hero” by z100 and was named TOP Artist of May 2013 at ArtistSignal.com winning $10.000 to advance their career. In July 2013 they released their first EP with title “On A Stage” under Red Thumbtack. A full album is scheduled to be released early 2014.
